COMMENTS

By definition, the arithmetic mean of a(1), ... a(n) is equal to L(n) and a(n) - Lucas(n) = (n - 1) * Lucas(n - 2). See A136391 for the Fibonacci case.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..42.

FORMULA

Recurrence: a(n + 1) = a(n) + a(n - 1) + 5*F(n - 2), n >= 2, where F = A000045. Proof: similar to A136391.

Also, a(n) = 2*a(n - 1) + a(n - 2) - 2*a(n - 3) - a(n - 4).

G.f.: x*(1 - x)*(1 + 4*x - x^2)/(1 - x - x^2)^2.

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 53 = 6*Lucas(6) - 5*Lucas(5) = 6 * 18 - 5 * 11 = 108 - 55.

a(4) = 16 = 4*Lucas(2) + Lucas(3) = 3*Lucas(2) + Lucas(4).

MAPLE

with(combinat): seq(n*(fibonacci(n-1)+fibonacci(n-3)) +fibonacci(n)+fibonacci(n-2), n=1..40).
